Mark quick question for you.

would you for see many problems adding building the super structure to the upper hull piece before joining the main hull pieces together? im thinking for lighting if I light the lower hull and trenches for that half and the upper hull and super structure for the other and then join the 2 add the engines she would go together okay, just wondering with your build what you thought

I may have missed it in the thread somewhere. Have you considered filling
the hull with expanding foam? Thats a lot of thin resin plates resisting the
incessently evil, horror of gravity.

They're not really that thin - about 1/4".

I'd enquired about that to Randy and he said it should be ok - but I found it just as easy to add the superstructure onto the hull.

I didn't read through every reply on this thread but I had very similar challenges building my client's kit. The kit is simply amazing to be sure and challenges should be expected with a resin kit this big. My only real complaint with regards to the kit was that the big hull plates really sshould have been done with a 2-part mold as opposed to an open pour. I do realize that this would mean higher costs for both Randy and the customers but for these parts they would have been worth it. The variations of thicknesses (as much as 1/8") caused a lot of headaches. But otherwise what an amazing model. The good part is that it's easy to add more detailing to cover most of the gaps.

Hi Alfred - I hope you are well.

Yes, it's a pretty amazing kit. On a par with yours.

Post more often here, eh? Let us know what you're up to on the resin front.

Greetings;

This might be a dumb question but is this kit still available and how much does it cost?

I think Randy isn't producing this kit right now. But he will be back at it in a month or two.
